Configuring multiple pools under same VIP in F5 Load Balancer
I have a requirement to have 2 pools added under the same VIP. Does F5 allow to do this ? If so, how ?
The reason I want to do like this is given below.
Say the URL "abc.com" resolves to the VIP "vip_abc" and "vip_abc" has the pool "pool_abc" mapped to it with 3 members m1,m2,m3 under this pool.
Now I have another new application which is being called by the URL "abc.com/newapp" which needs to go to another virtual host in my web server. Hence I am trying to configure a new pool say "pool_abc_newapp" and add this pool also to the same vip "vip_abc" and will have iRules written to redirect the traffic to pool_abc or pool_abc_newapp based on whether the HTTP:URI starts with /newapp or not.
Does F5 allow this configuration ? If not, what is the other alternative by which I can set this up ?
